Single muscle fibres from the giant barnacle, Balanus nubilis, were chemically skinned (2 % Tween 20), then equilibrated for 40 h in salt solutions ranging in ionic strength from 0-025 t 0 °'° M a t pH 7*o. The water content of the fibres and the net charge on the myofilaments increased with increasing salt concentration. Cation accumulation in the fibres was about equal to anion exclusion at all salt concentrations. When an organic solute (trimethylamine oxide, glycine, alanine, serine… CONTINUE READING
